frequency to read RH

#13
<<So if you absolutely have to guarantee the RH is below 98%, I'd wait until the probes read 95% and use a new probe for each reading.>>

This is what gets so frustrating as a subcontractor stuck between the MFG, the specifications, and the 'right thing to do' on one side and the contractor and the owner and the project deadlines on the other!

When I take initial readings and tell the GC we have a RH problem, they want to know A) what the readings are, and B) where we need to be to start, and they want the documentation to go with it. When I forward them the paperwork from the mfg that states 90% (for example) and then I tell them it is reading 92%; it doesn't matter to them if there is a margin of error of 2% at this level, all they hear/see is that magical 90% number. I can talk about margin of error until I am blue in the face, and tell them I can't install until it actually reads 88%, and it won't matter to them. They see the magical 90% number, and as soon as I get that reading, they will be on me to install or be in breach of my contract.

I get extremely frustrated that we are always the ones stuck with our backs against the wall over something that we, really, have no control over. I am seeing a shift in our area where specifiers are finally requiring the testing be done by independent 3rd parties (YAY!!) and although it won't cure the margin of error problem I am ranting about above, I still believe it is a step in the right direction.
